    Yeah... I know, he's been drinking since he was very young and it seems we've tried everything in the years since. But thanks very much and any and all help should be posted anyhow.

    I am so glad for you Hoss. I know it's hard to admit and quit.

    I haven't tried a witch. Some kind of curse or something, lol.

    I would try Al-Anon. Many recovering alcoholics attend the meetings and give valuable advice. They talk about the dos and don'ts and how to cope. There will be a local chapter near you.

    It is terrible. And it is a disease. Nobody chooses to behave insanely. But it is manageable. Kudos to those who got in front of it, and those who support them.

    Going through it now. Not fun.

    I used to go back in Cali. Maybe you're right and I should look for one here.

    Getting pushback on the religion thing. The higher power and such.

    Good luck to you, sir. I've been an alcoholic since my late teens (I'm 58 now) and I've learned how to live with it. Most of the time I'm able to abstain from drinking. But other times, not so good. I've accepted that it's something I'll have to deal with for the rest of my life.

    Not fun is right!

    You know... back when James and I married and still knew everything there was to know... this is the life we planned. Almost. It's almost perfect. Then it's this way instead.

    I will never turn my back on him and I still haven't given up on hope and ideas. I still think of kicking his ass up around his elbows though.

    And I have the best husband on the planet.
